Art Market at Fall Arts Festival Applications DUE JUNE 30

Art Market at JSP Fall Arts Festival

The JSP Fall Arts Festival will celebrate its 9th year in 2018. This hands-on, experiential community art festival enables participants to explore nearly 20 opportunities to make their own art and experiment with a variety of methods and processes through workshops led by professional artists. The Art Market will happen in conjunction with Fall Arts Festival and was created to meet community requests for such an event. What will set this event apart from other festivals is that all artists selling at the Art Market will also be required to conduct some kind of demonstration or mini workshop for festival goers. We see this as an opportunity for you to be able to educate the public and your buyers about your process, methods or materials which will increase your sales and align with the mission of the Fall Arts Festival, which is educational in nature. We expect over 3000 people to attend this year. There will be 10-12 artists in the Art Market this year. More info and application materials HERE.
